to change the law. they changed the law so that only a special election could fill a vacant seat. until then, the seat would have to be empty. mitt romney tried to veto that new law. but the legislature overrode his veto, thereby stripping mitt romney of his power to choose a replacement. that became a moot point because john kerry didn't win so he stayed on as senator. but then fast forward five years. 2009. new president barack obama, the country embroiled in a big debate over national health reform. those against it were against it to the point of rage. and those who wanted it were excited to be on the cusp of achieving something they had failed to achieve for decades. at the time the democrats had a majority in the united states senate, 60 seats is a filibuster proof super majority. that's enough to pass health reform. that majority for the democrats included senator ted kennedy. senator kennedy spent his career trying to pass health reform. it was his life's work. he had done it at the state level with that guy, mitt romney. he had led on the issue nationally for decades. it

obama care in debt negotiations. "the president's health care law adds a massive, expensive, unworkable government program at a time when our national debt already exceeds the size of our country's entire economy. we can't afford pinpoint and we can't afford to leave it intact. that's why i've been clear that the law has to stay on the table, as both parties discuss ways to solve our nation's massive debt challenge." mr. boehner, this is not what the election was all about. john boehner, if he is serious, will have to find out, but he certainly isn't very smart. the congressional budget office estimates, they show that the affordable care act will actually reduce the deficit. it doesn't make a lot of sense to get rid of a deficit reduction program, as part of a deficit reduction deal. the white house already rejected boehner's idea. obama care will not be part of debt negotiations. boehner is up to something here, don't you think? something else, that is. if you watch john boehner closely over the last two weeks, you can see him laying the ground work for the latest ploy. he called obam

talks about the concession. they were just saying just all people are equal in the eyes of the law, and that fell short of what abolitionists wanted, which was racial equality. and there was the belief that we can't let righteousness drive the process. it's working the machinery to get to that place where we get slavery prohibited as a start before we get to anything else. >> you know, i wanted to see the movie, in part inspired by david's column on friday, i went last night. and that was the striking part to me of the film. because i have been an activist and an advocate all my life. leading an advocate organization. a president has to get things done. so even if a president is transformational, it's how he gets there. and that's what lincoln had to deal with. that's the character that was played that you've got to back off of being a purist so we can get this done. now, it doesn't mean advocates shouldn't advocate. we don't govern. we try to push as far as we can. but at the end, they've got to have the president take all the pushing to say, this is what i'm going to achieve. and i th

because of their strict photo i.d. laws but because of their conservative voting majorities obviously. >>> neck, a whole new meaning for a campaign in shreds. we're talking literally. the remains of some documents with information about mitt romney's campaign motorcade went through an unlikely disposal process. they became the confetti found bybee standers at the macy's day thanksgiving day parade. some parade watchers notified police when they noticed the numbers and other text on the confetti seemed to match up with the romney campaign. other documents with the social security numbers and license plate numbers of long island police officers were in the confetti mix. macy's spokesman said the documents were not part of its stock of confetti that it had to have been brought in by other means. do you believe that or not? anyway, the police force in new york says they're reviewing their procedures for disposing of documents. >>> finally, the other sexiest man alive. we all know about the people magazine version, but check out this headline from a chinese news website. quote, north korea

. those bonds were not protected by law. they did not have the right to legally marry in any american colony or slate. men and women were only parents as long as it served the purposes and timetable of the slave holder. the practice of coveture meant that free white women could marry but they couldn't initiate divorce or have sole custody of their children, couldn't own property or enter into legal contracts. slavery is over and coveture has ended so it is all equal at the altar of family now. not exactly. as a matter of policy, the altar is still a defining framework of family. our laws continue to make it clear we value one kind of family over all others, married couples. married couples enjoy economic benefits in areas of taxes, estate planning, employment, medicine, dealt, housing, not to mention social es schemteem. what if your family is a same-sex union. they only have marriage rights in nine states in washington, d.c. that leaves family in 41 states without access to the economic benefits of marriage. why this narrow focus on marriage at all. since 1970, marriage rate
